Drive for Perfect Attendance Recognition Program awards Clark student
Two Anchorage School District students were announced as the first quarter winners of the Drive for Perfect Attendance Recognition Program.
Clark Middle School student Najma Ibrahim was surprised during her lunch period when she was brought on stage and presented an iPad from GCI. She also won a party by For Fun Alaska for her entire class that includes a giant inflatable obstacle course and pizza.
Dimond High School student Elise Oelke was awarded 25,000 Alaska Airlines Miles by General Communications, Inc. (GCI) during her second period class, according to a statement from Thompson and Co. Public Relations, who represent GCI.
Najma is among 3,627 middle school students who have had perfect attendance records for the first quarter of the school year. Along with with Elise, 2,324 high school juniors and seniors have perfect attendance as well. At the end of the school year, students with a perfect attendance record for all four quarters will be eligible to win a 2015 Jeep Renegade donated by Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of South Anchorage, or 50,000 Alaska Airlines Miles, courtesy of GCI.
One middle schooler will be awarded an Ultimate Field Day for their school, hosted by For Fun Alaska.
High school students with perfect attendance records will be entered to win one of four pairs of round-trip Alaska Railroad tickets to Seward or Denali, and students with 95 percent or better attendance will be awarded a foot-long Subway sandwich voucher.
Winners are drawn at random from the pool of eligible students. Students who are selected as a quarter winner are ineligible for other quarterly drawings, but will be eligible for the full-year drawings.
Several businesses have contributed prizes and sponsorships for the program, which is an Anchorage School District School Business Partnership program in its third year: GCI, Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of South Anchorage, IBEW, Fun For Alaska, Saltchuk Corporation, Subway of Alaska and the Alaska Railroad.
